Planning a wedding can be SO stressful and, obviously, one of most stressful aspects is planning and working within a budget. Deciding how and where money will be spent can be tricky, but budgeting for a beautiful wedding album is a choice that no bride and groom will ever regret. I can tell you, I (Brooke), DID NOT budget this into my day and have ALWAYS regretted it. Getting these memories in print is genuinely important. Without question this is the most photographed generation of all time yet so few memories make it to a printer. It is a a mission of ours for your wedding not to fall in that category.
In the digital age we live in, we often(or always!) trust electronic media to keep our important files. Printing photos and having a well made wedding album will ensure that your favorite images will never be lost. And as my Uncle Bob said upon learning of my career choice (i.e., DIGITAL wedding photographer), “What’s the point of a picture if it just stays on the computer.” Wise man, that Uncle Bob…..
Years from now trends will change, small details will be forgotten, but your wedding day photos will be a lasting part of your family history. This is why I LOVE what we do…… we capture snapshots of YOUR family history (you may tear up here because I sure do). Do you remember looking at old family wedding photos? I do. I remember asking my Grandma Faye all about her day……
September 6, 1955. THIS was their day, Nancy Faye Meggison married James Carlton Alger. She described every part of this day to me – from her nervous/excited smile to the smell of the Gardenia resting on her shoulder….and I am pretty sure Gardenia is my favorite scent because of this childhood conversation. As for my Grandpa Jim, he remembers it as the happiest day of his life – he couldn’t believe he was “marrying a beauty queen”. Wedding pictures become physical pieces of evidence of the love that start your family. A beautifully handcrafted wedding album is a way to show your children and your children’s children the example of your love and just how….gorgeous/fantastic/exciting…. your wedding day was from start to finish.
The album delivery really is one of our favorite parts of the Vow & Forever experience – when you get to have the book in your hands for the first time and know all of your beautiful details, love, and emotions are forever in print.
Our albums are custom designed from the size, color, and material to fit exactly your needs so that each and every time you open the book you are reminded of what a celebration it was and continues to be.
